with afghanistan's leader to hash out differences. frantic was today's watch word as secretary of state john kerry made an unannounced visit to kabul meeting with president hamid karzai and smoothing over u.s.-afghan tensions at a joint news conference. >> i appreciate enormously our friendship. and i know that you share with me a sense that this next year could well be one of the most important in the modern history of afghanistan. >> ifill: the show of unity followed new flare-ups as the u.s. winds down its combat mission there. after a deadly bombing this month, karzai was quoted as saying the u.s. colluded with the taliban to destabilize his country and to justify a continued u.s. presence beyond the december 2014 pullout date. today though he denied he had made that charge. >> there is a collusion? i never used the word "collusion" between the taliban and the u.s. those were not my words. those were picked up by the media. >> ifill: kerry in turn said he had reached an understanding with karzai on the matter. >> we're on the same page. i don't think there's any disagreement between us. i'm ve
to the united states. >> unless he makes it clear that he's behind kerry, they won't take kerry seriously. >> rose: why is that hard to do? >> because i think, because the president, we'll see but i think the president has basically decided the middle east is a place he wants to turn his back on. he wants to focus on the greener pastures of asia. >> i would say if i may that the risk is not just domestic, it's global. because of the linkage, if you fail in the middle east it resonates in north korea and vice versa. so the risk is broader than just the domestic price to be paid. >> rose: we continue this evening with a look at the frontier of medicine and how information, data is being used to understand illness and to provide us with an early warning. we talk with jeffrey hammerbacher, he is chief scientist at cloudera. >> and we went through a period in which data generation seemed to grow exponentially and that lead to the requirement to build software that could then collect and analyze that data. so if you look at the world wide web, all of a sudden we were taking all the documents, a
of state kerry returns to the region in a short while to pursue the work, these differences will surface. they were not-- they came out unilaterally by the president in the speech but they will come up fully when secretary kerry returns to the region. >> rose: but how did barack obama come to the presidency with what attitudes did israel, what commitments, what sense of significance for him? >> i think you have two book ends to this story. the cairo speech of 2009 and the injuries lem speech of 2013. and he comes to the cairo speech, which was a speech to the arab and muslim world, the belief that bush had ruined america's reputation in the arab and muslim world. and that he needed to fix that. after all, we had 150,000 troops deployed in afghanistan and iraq. he was about to send more. we needed to improve our relations with the arabs and the muslims. and if we could achieve that, i think he felt that would redound to the benefit of israel because then the arabs would be prepared to engage with israel in response to our influence on them, and israel would then respond. that was essentia

: we watched the trip and the meetings of the president and the new secretary of state, senator kerry, former senator kerry. what progress did we make? >> well, you know, my view is that obama went because he had a problem n. in the first administration, he couldn't figure out whether he wanted to pressure netanyahu or pannedder to him? now he has clearly made a decision to try to create a functional partnership. i think that's really important because as things stand now the, if barack obama doesn't want to be the guy on whose watch iran gets the nuclear weapon or the two-state solution expire, he is going to have to find a way to deal effectively and work cooperatively with the new government and with the prime minister. >> jamie: what about the secretary of state? >> you know, it's been my view from the very beginning that barack obama's the most controlling foreign policy president since richard nixon. hillary clinton was given very true truly cons quential issues to manage. kerry may be in a better situation because it's legacy time and obama is trying to figure out what do todo

much to even go there? >> they are talking about it but i think it will be in john kerry's lap and he will be here saturday night. after going to jordan with the president we will double back to jerusalem, have dinner with netanyahu, have dinner with a couple of advisers on both sides, and they will try to move this along. it is a big stretch. my colleague, veteran journalist here, martin fletcher of nbc, says it is hard for them to come up with a new configuration. you have ynetanyahu out of a ne election. you have palestinian authority. so how you have negotiations and what the formula would be and israel surrounded byis lathe fund meantlism and war in syria, it just really is a very hard climb. but they said they are at least going to start. and i know that john kerry is very committed to this. >> andrea mitch they'll jerusalem. thanks so much, andrea. great information. >> my pleasure, thank you. >> with us now is a fellow from is a van center at middle east policy from brookings institution. as andrea just mentioned, israelis had an election of their own recently. prime minister

kerry, the israelis, mahmoud abbas, are going to try to operate. but as barack obama knows, no president ever lost money betting against this issue and he may not, either. >> and then there's iran, to say nothing of complicated problems. it's very clear from the president's signals in recent days and his interview with israeli television, there's a different notion in the united states. we saw this in the threat assessment testimony last week from the intelligence community. the intelligence community here believes that there's a year at least a year before iran is closing that window of vulnerability. the danger point, the red zone. israel has a very different sense of where the red doan starts and when. >> i think when you look at what the president said, he said a year from iran making a decision to pursue, to break out, they could have a bomb. that's a complicated process that involves enrichment, weaponization, a number of processes to get them to a place where they could deliver a nuclear payload. the u.s. and israel have the exact same sets of data about iran's nuclear program. ar

john kerry made a surprise visit to baghdad earlier today where he spoke to prime minister nuri al maliki. secretary kerry is now in amman, jordan, and so is chief foreign affairs correspondents andrea mitchell, traveling with the secretary of state. she joins us by phone now. andrea, what did secretary kerry accomplish with this trip to baghdad? >> reporter: well, it was a very tough trip and a tough message, because we went to baghdad, a quick visit. surprise, under tight security and secrecy, for obvious reasons, because ten years ar the war, there still are terror attacks. last week, when dozens were killed in baghdad. he was in a secure place in the embassy and then visiting prime minister maliki and the speaker of the parliament in iraq in their residences, but his message to mallski that the maliki government is permits iran to send weapons and fighters, overflight, loaded with weapons and fighters, to prop up assad in syria and that this is something that americans and the congress, that the administration, cannot understand or tolerate, and as kerry told us afterwards, it
of state john kerry on his first official trip to afghanistan. kerry made a surprise stop to visit karzai today. nick, how is kerry trying to help karzai? >> reporter: i think leaning on that longtime friendship they talked about in the press conference today, perhaps trying to let people in washington know that the u.s. is working with the taliban to prevent violence denied by many there to suggest they can still work with him, he's still potentially an ally. but we're really talking about a very fraught relationship here that requires this kind of theater in front of cameras when really the u.s. and afghanistan should be working so closely, these vital agreements in the future, because of the drawdown that's happening now. they should be working in harmony, not trying to prove to everybody they can still get along, jake. >> nick, this is an unstable leader in an unstable country. what is the prognosis for karzai's continued success in afghanistan after almost all of the u.s. military leaves at the end of next year? >> reporter: well, he's potentially going to leave as well. i mean, he w
as well. could this be obama helping to set up secretary of state john kerry for what you talk about is the larger issue of peace negotiations down the line? >> yes, and i believe secretary kerry is very committed to a middle east peace process. i think it's long overdue. and i think the president's got to give him the political cover that secretary kerry would need. and key is going to be the israeli public. and the relationship with president netanyahu. you know you what say candid or business-like in diplomacy, it means that it's not a perfect relationship. but, you know, a lot of leaders, they develop this relationship. a better relationship, over time, and i think that's what the president is doing. >> so as long as the business relationship can produce positive business results it's a good thing. let's talk about iran. the nuclear issue that's a top issue for president obama's agenda. on friday, defense secretary chuck hagel said there are these plans to beef up missiles after north korea said it was going to be trying to have its preemptive nuclear strike against the u.s. or l
john kerry will stay a couple of days here and likely return very soon to start lay down the foundation. not for talks next week or next month but can they get these leaders to say and do the right thing? perhaps -- put a capital p on that perhaps, get them back to the negotiating table. there are so many difficult issues. >> we're about two minutes away from this press availability or speech we'll see from the two leaders. the reuters headline basically said after backslapping in israel, the president faces discontent on the second day of his trip. that pretty much sums it up. >> reporter: it does sum it up. it's hard because he needs to essentially try to help president abbas. the israeli government will tell you if they are going to make peace, president abbas is the one person they trust. he is aging. he has a fractured palestinian leadership. hamas is essentially sending the message to him we might not support you. be careful. plus the president of the yunitd states labels hamas a terrorist group. united states government before and after obama will likely claim hamas a terrorist g

is what happens when he comes back. what president obama said is he and secretary kerry would put their heads together and he suggested secretary kerry would pursue this. the real question is, is president obama willing to expend any political capital at home in the interests of middle east peace? i think we still don't know the answer to that. >> thank you so much. much appreciated. >>> also in world news north korea does not need the range to attack u.s. soil in order to attack americans. about 28,000 u.s. military personnel are stationed in neighboring south korea. 38,000 are in japan. and now kim jong un's forces are threatening to wipe those bases off the map. our own tom foreman is standing by in our virtual studio. tom, just how serious is this threat? >> well, i tell you, jake, a lot more serious than what he said a couple weeks ago the idea he'd lob a missile over to the united states some 5,000 miles away. all the analysts say they don't have the technology to make that happen right now. but this idea of hitting americans in the pacific area, much more plausible. look at
presidential campaign i worked for john kerry and dick gephardt two great progressives and being for civil unions in that campaign was considered the leading edge. >> it was a big deal then. >> big deal. in 2016 every democrat running for president will be for marriage equality. you know, frankly, i think the republicans as we saw with rob portman last week and the report they put out yesterday are starting to come our way, too. it's only a matter of time. >> that was my question. do you think that, well, if any democrat or for that matter any republican can get through 2016 that the obvious pickle is for republicans who are trying to get through the primaries? >> i think it'll be tough for a republican but if i look at "the washington post"/abc poll yesterday, 81% of people under the age of 30 -- 81% are for marriage equality. if they're not going to be for it in 2016 they're going to be for it in 2020 or 2024. >> vice president biden, maryland's governor, martin o'malley, of course new york's governor andrew cuomo, all of them for same sex marriage. do you think we'll see a sort of a win

emerging from the united states. what's going on? >> reporter: well, john kerry came out today and said quite clearly that he would not stand in the way of allies of the united states who wanted to arm the syrian rebels. that's not saying the u.s. would do that themselves. they've been very reluctant and the joint chiefs of staff says his understanding of who the rebels were, in fact, got more confused the past year as the rebels gone more extremists. what john kerry's words do is permit the uk and france to begin the process of arming. they've been talking about ev e evading or working around eu sanctions. they are yet to begin the process of handing them over. it's a long, difficult, practical road ahead, but part of the calculation is by saying they'll do it, they might draw president bashar assad towards a negotiation table, put extra pressure on him, wolf? >> joining us from beirut with that story, significant developments. thanks, nick, very much. >>> there are huge problems to tackle in the middle east right now, but the white house is downplaying expectations for the president'
thing. it's clear that the administration is -- if you looked at senator kerry's trip, every day on that trip, you saw him in a sense evolving in terms of what we might be doing on syria. i suspect the administration is taking a hard look at and a fresh look at what can be done, and i suspect this trip is going to very much add to that. why don't i pause there. >> very good. thank you. david. >> thank you. everyone. it's good to see everyone. good to be on the panel with my colleagues. i just came back yesterday and i must say i'm -- well, dennis and i have our own cop very generalses. i might be a little less upbeat, having returned from there, and it could be a question of how these things are put forward. but i agree with him definitely on the public piece. i cannot see obama but succeed on the public part of the trip. it really is two trips in one act least to israel. the public part, israel, you'd be hard pressed to find a ford minivan reside full of israel yous who are antiamerican whatever if the differences have been with obama, for the most part, every stop along the vis
. is there anything that comes out of it stsubstantively. >> john kerry went back to meet with netanyahu. probably the best thing that can happen is we don't see any large summits convening public displace and there's hard work of diplomacy going on behind-the-scenes. i think john kerry is putting this at the top of his agenda for his at the entrepreneur as secretary of state. the president has given him the political push to do it and i think if we don't read or see big public displace then quiet diplomacy behind-the-scenes is what should be going on. >> mahmoud abbas basically saying, you know, so the idea is how can we restart negotiations. right now the netanyahu government says we should begin direct negotiations right now. let's talk. the p.a.'s position is there has to be a settlement freeze. the israeli government can floij secretly he'll stop settlement activities during the period of negotiations, referring to president netanyahu of israel he doesn't have to announce i want as a way much threading the needle. his political base will go crazy if he announces a settlement freeze. a settlem
home, secretary of state john kerry is remaining in the region. he has a pair of meetings today, one of them with the palestinian president mahmoud abbas. that's taking place in jordan. another one that will take place over dinner with the prime minister, benjamin netanyahu of israel. just another signal of just how important this issue is to the administration as they're showing once again their commitment to try to revive these peace talks. alex? >> all right, peter, thank you so much. >>> here at home the senate passed its first budget in four years, this during an all-night session. the nonbinding blueprint passed by a near party line vote. before its passage the senate spent several hours taking up dozens of amendments. >> average voteorama, 35 amendments. we've done 70, twice as many. doing this has been a herculean feat. >> i know everyone is exhausted and you may not feel it at the moment, but this is one of the senate's finest days in recent years and i commend everyone who has participated in this extraordinary debate. >> some of the amendments had nothing to do with the bu
visit, along with the visit of the secretary of state kerry, will help us turn a page in our relations with the palestinians. let us sit down at the negotiating table. let us put aside all pre conditions, let us work together to achieve the historic compromise that will end our conflict once and for all. let me conclude, mr. president, on a personal note. i know how valuable the time and the energies of the american president, of yourself. this is the 10th time we've met since you became president and i became prime minister. you've chosen israel as your first venue in your visit, your foreign visit in your second term. i want to thank you for the investment you have made in our relationship and in strengthening the friendship and alliance between our two countries. it is deeply, deeply appreciated. you have come here on the eve of passover. i've always considered it as our most cherished holiday. it celebrates the jewish people's passage from slavery to freedom. through the ages, it has also inspired people struggling for freedom, including the founding fathers of the united states. s
syrian opposition council. now you have the secretary kerry, who is deeply involved in that effort as well. e are providing not just advice, but training and capacity in order for that political opposition to maintain links within syria and be able to provide direct services for people inside of syria, including the relief efforts that obviously we are seen here in jordan, but there is a whole bunch of people internally displaced inside of syria who need help. i think that what your question may be suggesting maybe is, why haven't we simply gone in militarily? and you know, i think it is fair to say that the united states oftentimes it finds itself in situations where if it goes in militarily, and if it does not, then people say, why are you doing something ilitarily? and you know, my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contribute to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. and working in a multilateral context, an international context, because we think our experience shows when we lead, but we are also working with others like the jordanians, th

is my administration is committed in doing our part. i know that secretary of state john kerry intends to spend significant time, effort, and energy into try to bring about a closing of the gap between the parties. we cannot give up on the search for peace. oo much is at stake. and if we're going to success, part of what we're going to do is get out of some of the formulas and habits that have blocked progress for so long. both sides have to think anew. those of us in the united states have to think anew. but i'm confident that we can arrive in our destination to advance the vision of two nation, two neighbors at peace israel and palestine. if given the chance, one thing i'm certain of is the palestinians have the talent, drive, and the courage to succeeded in their own state. i think scrimmages to hold peaceful protests because they understand the force of nonviolence. i think of the importance that palestinian families place on education. i of the the entrepreneurs determined to create something new like the young palestinian woman i met at the summit that i hosted that wants to buil
